I am in the process of hiring an assistant and I have a ton of resumes. I've narrowed the search down to a few and I want to know more about them besides what they put on paper before I waste their time with an interview.
So I am posing the question... is it okay to check out their Facebook page? I can search people by their e-mail on their resume. Is this crossing the line? This one potential person had tons of posts about ex-husband drama. I really don't want someone with personal issues that would affect her work. Is that fair of me to judge? Some kind of form of discrimination?
Have you considered what someone would think of you by what you make public on Facebook? I would hope most people have privacy settings. If you don't and are looking for a job, watch out!
